Well was in Gainesville in the early am and talked the wife into making a run to Tampa, and glad we did. We got there on a day where they were doing a raffle on the Barrel aged RIS, we entered but did not get lucky, anyway was crowded to the max, lol good times
Its your standard corner micro brewery and tasting room. Since I can compare the two BBC and CCB, We have to say that CCB comes out on top here also.
The bar is 90 degrees to the entrance, the restrooms are in the warehouse/brewery area, so its a hot trip trip back and forth. No smoking inside is great. The bar is nice, new of course and had about 20 chairs yesterday. Very friendly folks who actually introduced themselves!!. They had a large ratebeer crowd and a few BA folks all were very friendly. We got lucky as they had a cask of the 110k+OT Batch #3 so that was an early treat. so it s was a wild day. The beer list had 2 barrel aged RIS, in sniffer's, and you could buy 4 beers in bomber, the only beer that was hard to drink was the Gruit. which even they admitted required an open mind, I drank it and it was weird but not that terrible.
Anyway the got no food but the let you go get pizza and they usually have open tables and a less crowded Saturday but hey we love it when its crazy had a great time too bad we had to drive all the way back to Jax.
Beer list was nice, not for your average BMC drinker, yea it ran off the non craft lovers.

I stopped for a brewery tour while with my wife on our last trip to Tampa. It was neat seeing the brewery, and it was after the latest shit show of Huna Day 2014. You could tell everyone was a little tired and overwhelmed by the events of the weekend. Our tour guide Chris was fantastic, answered any and all questions and gave us a nice history of the brewery and some of the beers. The selection in the tap room was decent, I got to try a lot of one-offs. The bartender at the front bar, Zeus was pretty cool. The bartender at the back bar, don't remember his name, but he could have cared less about people buying flights, and only was interested in serving those who were buying full pints. Needless to say, we hung out by the front bar. We also got sandwiches from the cafe they have set up there. Not a huge selection, but the Cuban sandwich was pretty darn tasty. Overall, I liked the experience and will be going back.

Okay, get your shit together guys. I traveled all the way from NC and was expecting much more at Huna day 2014. Didn't get to try any of the taps I wanted because of greedy bastards who managed to get by your lazy-ass "ticket checker." Great beer, shitty service, overpriced food = overrated experience. Hope you fix your issues.

It was raining today when we went to Tampa. We had intended on a trip to the zoo but wound up at the Cigar City Brewery and had a great time. Tasting room was packed and it took a long time to get one of the bar keeps attention. Once we did it....was....on! Being from OH this was a treat for me! Im super glad we stopped and got treata for the journey home.
